Tim Tebow confirms romance with Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
Tim Tebow is once again dating a Miss Universe, this time around it’s Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who currently holds the crown after winning the pageant in 2017.
Speculation abounded in recent days over a potential romance in large part due to social media posts from Katie and Robby Tebow in which the new couple pose together amid friends and family.
Tebow confirmed the relationship with Nel-Peters, a native of South Africa, during an interview with ESPN’s Pedro Gomez.
“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life. I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful.”
Tebow and Nel-Peteres reportedly met a Super Bowl party and hit it off. The 2017 Miss Universe, 23, is said to have split up from her longtime boyfriend before starting to date Tebow, 30. Terez Owens reports Tebow gave Nel-Peteres a “pricey” David Yurman necklace as a birthday gift last month.
As noted, this is not the first time Tebow has been romantically linked to a Miss Universe, as the current New York Mets minor-leaguer in 2015 dated Olivia Culpo — who recently may have gotten back together with Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola — who was crowned Miss Universe back in 2012.
Rumors last year linked Tebow to a certain reality star, but nothing came of it. Either way, it’s clear now Tebow, who continues to show some semblance of progress in his pro baseball career, only has eyes for Nel-Peteres.
